GAO Level 3 Rules

GAO Level 3 Rules of Golf Workshop

UXBRIDGE— The Golf Association of Ontario (GAO) will be hosting an online Level 3 Rules Workshop beginning January 4, 2016. This seminar is being offered to all individuals who have successfully completed Golf Canada Level 2 Certification and are interested in proceeding to Level 3 certification.

For the past several years the GAO has offered Level 3 Rules Education through a weekly online webinar. This program will once again be offered in 2016 for those interested in becoming a Rules Official at the regional and provincial competitions.

The program runs one night per week for 13 weeks starting the week of January 4th, with each session lasting 2 – 2.5 hours.

This year, increased emphasis will be placed on the new code that includes the new rule on anchoring. The USGA and The R&A, golf’s governing bodies, have adopted changes to Rule 14-1 of the Rules of Golf that prohibit anchoring the club in making a stroke. The new rule will go into effect on January 1, 2016, in accordance with the regular four-year cycle for changes to the Rules of Golf.

Registration closes December 14.
